What is it about the burpee that makes us crazy? We love to hate them. We groan and roll our eyes when an instructor or trainer asks us to do them. A burpee is a big total-body movement that includes a squat and may incorporate a plank, push-up and jump. This video shows you some ways to deconstruct and modify a burpee to make it a little more user-friendly, safe and enjoyable.
Before you start any workout or exercises, make sure you warm up your body with dynamic stretches and rehearsal moves.
How to Modify a Burpee:
1. Hands on platform (hands elevated)
2. Step back one foot at a time (elevated and on floor)
3. No push-up
4. No jump
